The Passion of Dracula is a play written by American playwrights Bob Hall [1] and David Richmond [2]. Full Length Play, Dramatic Comedy. Casting: 7m, 2f.

This version of the Dracula legend based on the 1897 Bram Stoker novel is set in the English countryside in 1911 where several village girls have died under mysterious circumstances. Dr. Seward presides over a nearby mental hospital and the locality has acquired a new resident, Count Dracula! A trio of doctors, a young reporter and a stouthearted English lord battle the Count for possession of the lovely heroine. With a dash of Holmesian sleuthing in this Baskerville hound country setting, our heroes save the heroine and dispatch the Count in the traditional manner.

First produced in New York, 1977.
